Default Re: Yao Ming is out for next season!

Assuming this is true and Yao will in fact miss all of next season, there are four parties responsible for this tragedy:

The laws of physics and human biology. Gravity and Yao's unnatural size just did not allow him to stay healthy consistently, and he now appears to have worn down entirely.

The Chinese government for forcing Yao to play on their national team during the off-season. Looks like you killed the golden-egg laying goose, and for what? Making the Olympic basketball tournament only to be bounced in the first elimination game every time?

The Houston Rockets for never getting a backup center who could reduce Yao's minutes. 40 year old Dikembe doesn't count. Basically they played him too many minutes.

Yao himself for agreeing to play for the Chinese national team every damn off-season, and for not demanding that the Rockets find a way to reduce his minutes.





I guess we won't ever have to hear Rocketsgreatness spewing his bull**** about Yao being better than Dwight when healthy anymore, because what most of us already realized is now painfully clear: Yao is never going to be consistently healthy again. Dwight on the other hand is an ironman, a dominant rebounder and defensive presence, and still has a lot of potential to expand his offensive game.

Humans are not supposed to be as big as him. Which is why so many big men throughout the years suffer through leg/knee/back problems and our bodies were just not meant to carry such a load and to play it so hard.

Its a damn shame if he cannot recover from this. We never really got to see what Yao could really do as a healthy man. He has shown us glimpses but it really sucks as a basketball fan to see a great player go down. One of my fav players and a classy guy. Rockets really have been cursed. Good luck to him

At the moment it is all speculation, so hopefully it is a rumor and not true. I really hope it isn't true, but.....

What do you think of this? I agree with your post by the way.

Again, hopefully it is all speculation. Did they reveal the source?

Looking at it this could be a leak with an intended purpose.

Last week, some GMs commented that they thought that the sudden announcement about Yao's foot was just a sneaky way for him to get out of his summer commitments in China, probably causing them to grow bold in demanding he play this summer.

Perhaps this is leak is in response to that, swinging suspicion the other way ... seriously, only a doctor would know how serious this is, not a journalist speculating. I only heard speculation here ... no facts, but if it is true. I would be so sad for Yao. I've come to love the big guy and appreciated him over the recent years.

Wow. His body was obviously not holding up well, but I thought he had another season or two left in the tank. It would suck to lose one of the last good "big" men left playing in the NBA.
